You may know her from her breakthrough role on The Devil Wears Prada or from the 2016 movie, Girl on the Train. Since overcoming her stutter at a young age, the English-American actress has gone on to find massive success and is the recipient of numerous awards, including a Golden Globe.

Along the way she has learned a lot about herself, Hollywood, and love.

Here are 10 of Emily Blunt’s best quotes:

    1. “It’s always a good thing to push people’s minds that women can be tough and cool and lethal, I do feel things are changing. Women are proving themselves time and time again to have an amazing tap of what works in cinema.” – Emily Blunt
    2. “It was just crazy. It just sort of fell into my lap. It’s an awful story for people who’ve struggled and waited. It’s a horrible thing to hear. It was just incredibly fortunate. And now I can’t believe I was so casual about it, because I really wouldn’t want to do anything else.” – Emily Blunt (On becoming a successful actress)
    3. “My head was occupied all the time. I was confused about what I wanted to do or who I was; I didn’t really feel I had an identity growing up.” – Emily Blunt (On her childhood)
    4. “I couldn’t talk as a kid because I stammered all the time, so I would just watch. I’m fascinated by human behavior. People surprise me all the time. And I love being able to morph into different characters.” – Emily Blunt
    5. “I live to give.” – Emily Blunt
    6. “If I open a script and the description reads ‘nice, normal girl’, I slam it shut.” – Emily Blunt
    7. “You don’t know what to expect because it’s just completely, existentially out of anything that you’ve ever experienced before, and it’s quite indescribable. It’s heaven.” – Emily Blunt (on Motherhood)
    8. “When you’re in love, you’re so happy that you want to tell people about it. But now I have to censor myself. You need to protect the happiness you have.” – Emily Blunt
    9. “I find it quite hard to sum up my relationship in a sound bite. I feel that it trivializes it for other people’s pleasure. It’s an adventure.” – Emily Blunt
    10. “People quit on jobs. They quit on marriages. They quit on school. There’s an immediacy of this day and age that doesn’t lend itself to being committed to anything.” – Emily Blunt
